FedDev Ontario Supports Environmentally-Responsible Technology

$225,000 for Cornwall-based green tech company to scale up and compete globally
 
Cornwall, Ontario - A clean environment and a strong economy go hand in hand. The Government of Canada is investing in Cornwall’s Food Cycle Science, which provides an eco-friendly solution to divert food waste from landfills.
 
The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for FedDev Ontario, announced a FedDev Ontario contribution of up to $225,000 that has helped Food Cycle Science scale up and further commercialize its FoodCycler—a composting unit that reduces kitchen food waste by up to 90 percent by transforming it into a nutrient-rich soil fertilizer.
 
FedDev Ontario funding has allowed Food Cycle Science to expand marketing activities to sell its innovative on-site waste disposal technology in new markets and create up to three additional full-time jobs.
 
This investment in Food Cycle Science’s environmentally-responsible technology allows the company to divert food waste from landfills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which contributes to a healthier environment for Canadians.
